As one of the world’s largest privately-owned businesses, we experience unusual levels of freedom when it comes to how we operate in our roles. I was given real responsibility and autonomy from day one and I feel like I have a direct impact on our overall results and that my opinion is always valued.

The first week I started working as a grad, I was told by everyone that I can be myself completely working here. There is no judgement of anyone’s unique personalities. It has made me feel free, safe, and trusted working at Mars. Everyone’s best interest is to help other associates’ development to excel.
